have 48 million people who before obama care had no health insurance at all, what is the republicans' position? what is their solution to the fact that we spend so much more than any other country? their solution is to end medicare as we know it, transform it into a voucher system, give a senior citiz citizcitizen $8,000 and say good luck. make massive cuts in medicaid, and you're even seeing in states around the country now, republican governors whose states could have free medicaid for three years. doesn't cost them a nickel. for all of their low-income people, they are saying no, we don't want it. so what is very clear about this whole situation is the republicans have nothing to say. all they can do is play the anti obama care card, and hope that it fails. and they're going to lose on that. of. >> now, paralleling back to the alabama-auburn football game about never giving up, this was one game in one season. there's going to be another season and another game and the republicans are going to never stop playing it, because they have gone after the entitlement programs, the big th

. republicans are going to try to make president obama look terrible for negotiating that new agreement over iran's nuclear program and in the process of making him look terrible they, of course, will show the country that they, themselves, republicans are much better on the issue. they are much more trustworthy, much more sober, much more sane when it comes to dealing with complicated and sensitive issues like iran and nuclear weapons in the middle east. republicans want to show off how much americans should prefer their republican approach when it comes to iran. as part of that new political offensive, behold duncan hunter on c-span. >> i think a ground war in iran with american boots on the ground would be a horrible thing and i think people like to toss around the fact that we have to stop them from getting this nuclear capability. i don't think it's inevitable but if you have to hit iran, you do it with tactical nuclear devices. >> oh, just tactical nuclear devices. the little kind. what could possibly go wrong? republicans have got the big thinkers who know that little, tiny nuclear wa

, in fact, seven out of ten doctors, ard coulding to a new report out this morning, are boycotting the obama care exchange, because, for instance, for getting a tonsilectomy. $500 to $700 they would normally be able to charge for a tonsilectomy in other parts of the country. in california, $160. one of the doctors, he's the president of the california medical association, he sums it up perfectly. we need recognition we're doing a service to the community, but we can't do it for free. he says, we can't do it at a loss. no other business would do that. >> $160? you can't get a bone and rib-eye and a bottle of beer at the pub for that. that's an outrage. >> and return visits, also, $76. generally in most states across the country. in california, it's about $24. take an listen to the doctor in the state of california. a very loose state, mind you, who's fed up with this. >> we train to take care of patients. that's the bottom line here, but in order to take care of patients you have to be able to keep your doors open, pay your overhead, pay your staff. the reality is $24 doesn't cover the cost o

what they've been doing? once again, if they get a nuclear weapon, every country in the area will have a nuclear weapon. the question also comes, president obama spleen, the steel allows them to enrich uranium to a certain point. it only takes a few minutes to go from that point to nuclearization. if that's where you want to have them wear brand two months away from having a nuclear weapon at all times, if that makes everybody happy, that's pretty scary. >> host: back to the "washington post." they also write this. sunni arab states don't object to deal that could curb iran's nuclear objections, but they worry about the ramifications of ties between tehran and washington said one security expert, the big worry he said at a long-term deal normalizing ties between iran and the united states took him at the expense of sunni influence. what do you think about this? expanded a little bit. they like to make friends with our past foes and kind of ignore our allies. this kind of plays into it. the saudi's will not be the greatest country in the world, women still can't vote in saudi arabia. wo
across the country tried to prepare for thanksgiving, the obama administration tried to hide another unilateral, one-year delay of obama care. just like in july right before the independence day holiday, the administration tried to hide the one-year delay of the business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew about the website problems well before the website launch. the administration tries to continue to hide problems on the back end of the website that deliver information and payments to insurers often as we now know incorrectly. the administration has tried to hide the security problems that exist with the website that one official called limitless prior to the website's launch. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that millions of americans would lose the coverage that they like. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will now lose access to the doctors, the pediatricians and perhaps even the hospitals that they choose. at this point, one has to ask, what else are they hiding? you know, wh

that confront our country, and of putting our country on a fiscally sustainable path. i am, as you know, for a big deal in which all of the options are put on the table, which is what president obama did. president obama did not do discussed as is being and i understand it now, being urged by mr. ryan. the reason he did not discuss smallbore is because he wanted to give confidence to the economy. he wanted to get off this government by crisis. he wanted to get to a sustainable path as we move forward. i am very hopeful that before the budget conference reports, that they reach such an agreement. agreement, but a big agreement, which deals with the issues that chris is talking about, investing in our economy, investing in our infrastructure, education, growing our economy, making sure that unemployment insurance does not expire. i agree with leader pelosi. does not necessarily have to be within the budget agreement itself, but it does have to be part of addressing the economic challenges that confront our country and our people. i could say more, but i have to leave because my staff is s
. there is no land mine treaty to ban the use. every single nato country save one,as signed it, and that the most powerful nation on earth, the united states. that is not the leadership i expect from my government. w bush, andrge obama, the administration has not joined and have not joined and has isolated the united states on this issue, and i asked what kind of message this worldto the rest of the in this lack of leadership. we ought to just sign it. we spend hundreds of millions of dollars in move -- in removing landmines around the world. helpe the leahy fund to landmine victims around the world. what are we afraid of? leahy lawhave another that says we cannot export land mines? let's show the courage. it only takes a little bit, to go for it and sign the treaty, like every one of our allies has done. is that so difficult? now, in conclusion, let me tell you, on november 22, we remember the great losses entry suffered 50 years ago when president kennedy was assassinated. as i drove down here, i , as aered my wife and i young law student, watching the cortes go by, hundreds of thousands of peo

by winnie he walked out of there but changed the country from rancor and hostility and said no we're going to reconcile. this became a viable winning tactic in the life of someone like barack obama that i think never left him and i would say helped to lead him towards the kind of change and hope dynamic that he helped to make central in his own political career. so i don't think it's a leap to say the impact that the spirit of mandela and that movement had on our own president. >> katty kay? >> i just want to ask rick something about the international concerns about mandela when he came out of prison because as you point out he was committed to arms struggle in south africa. he refused to give up the arms struggle as a negotiating tactic to get him out of prison. i was in cape town the day he walked out of prison and we didn't know what nelson mandela was going to be like. was he going to be the marxist that went into pry son, was he going to have this reconciliation. in the context of the cold war, rick, the uncertainty surrounding what south africa would become was palpable. >> yes. nobo
